'Gaines' and 'Nugaines' varieties of soft white winter wheat (Triticum aestivum) yield straw ranging up to about 7 tons per acre (2). Growing row crops such as dry edible beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) or sugarbeets (Beta vulgaris) following such heavy straw production poses special management problems. Straw layers that result from plowing down a large amount of straw may result in reduced bean yields (supposedly because of nitrogen immobilization), abnormal sugarbeet root growth, and… CONTINUE READING
